Keep Your Bathrooms Squeaky Clean

Last update: 24 December, 2019

Keeping bathrooms clean and free of bacteria has probably crossed your mind more than a couple of times. Sometimes the products you use aren’t enough to ensure a deep clean of the entire room.

There’s nothing worse than a dirty bathroom. You can just feel the lack of hygiene around you and the result is extreme discomfort. Instead of leaving you freshened up, a dirty bathroom only leaves you feeling grimy.

Public bathrooms– whether they’re bar, restaurant or public transport bathrooms– aren’t always squeaky clean. But that should never be the case for your personal bathroom. Read our tips for achieving a complete clean for your bathroom.

Daily cleaning habits

Having the willpower to clean daily is essential. You should force yourself to keep a schedule and clean before you head off to work. Leaving your home nice and clean first thing in the day is ideal.

You use your bathroom several times a day for your personal hygiene needs. Consequently, bacteria can build up and present a health danger. If you never clean your bathroom, germs will constantly be on the rise.

Having a clean bathroom every day for your personal use is essential. So don’t let your habits slip. By keeping things clean, you can enjoy a sparkling bathroom when you come home from work.

Comfort is directly linked to cleanliness.

Look for the best products

You’ll need the best products to keep your bathroom clean. They’ll help you achieve a supreme clean and the hygienic conditions that are standard for a safe, healthy bathroom.

  • Bleach is the best disinfectant product. It eliminates all dirtiness and kills any trace of bacteria. Bleach leaves surfaces sterilized and bathrooms feeling clean and healthy.
  • Special toilet products. Some products are liquid and act in a matter of minutes. Others stick right onto the bowl, releasing detergent and a fresh scent with every flush.
  • Ammonia can be a great occasional product to use when you want a deep clean. But be careful as it’s a powerful liquid that can irritate your airways.
  • Use gloves as direct contact with cleaning products can harm your skin, especially bleach or ammonia.

Soft sponge or scrubbing sponge?

You’ve probably used a sponge to clean your bathroom at one point or another. Both soft and scrubbing sponges can provide a good clean but they have their downsides.

  • Soft sponges create a lot of suds but lack the roughness to completely scrub off dirt and grime.
  • Scrubbing sponges have a rough and soft side, making it the ideal choice for cleaning. They allow you to completely remove stains while producing plenty of suds for a sublime clean.

Steps for perfectly clean bathrooms

First, set aside 15 minutes to clean your bathroom every day. Take the time to clean every inch of the room and remove any grime that has collected on surfaces.

Leave the products to work for at least 2 minutes. After this, wipe and reapply as you need to remove any traces of germs. Wash off with water and dry. These steps will help your bathroom feel supremely clean.

If you have hard water, use an anti-limescale product to prevent unsightly white stains from forming around your bathroom.

The finishing touches

Next up is mopping the floors. Try to use bleach to kill off any traces of bacteria. Make sure to cover every nook and cranny, especially around the toilet.

Aim to clean your wall tiles once a week as steam and splashes can leave them dirty.

Lastly, we recommend using an air freshener. All these steps will give you a spotless bathroom.
